Percy Jackson is ready to resurface. The series adaptation of the best-selling novels is set to launch this summer. We reveal more to you!

Percy Jackson is above all a series of five novels written by Rick Riordan. The author draws inspiration from Greek mythology to create adventures in which gods, demi-gods, fantastic creatures and humans meet, all in the 21st century. This is a huge success ! The books flow like hotcakes. With nearly 180,000 copies sold worldwide, translated into 42 languages, the series is a literary tidal wave. Percy Jackson will even be adapted to the cinema. In 2020, Disney announced the arrival of a series inspired by the novels and whose filming should finally begin. It was enough to delight fans who are firmly waiting for a faithful adaptation of the original work.

Percy Jackson narrates the adventures of the hero of the same name who discovers that he is a demi-god. His father is indeed the god of the sea, Poseidon. This is worth to him to be endowed with extraordinary powers that he will have to learn to master. In novels, Percy Jackson has the ultimate mission to stop the Titans from bringing down the gods and destroying the world. He will obviously not be alone in his quest. Throughout the chapters, there are many emblematic characters from Greek mythology, not without a touch of modernity! This very rich universe had also led to an adaptation to the cinema in two films. Disappointing, they had even been criticized by the author of the novels himself.

Percy Jackson, the series gives itself the means to succeed

Percy Jackson arriving on Disney + will of course be widely awaited by fans. Some pretty reassuring news, however, had been unveiled. It is known that Rick Riordan, the author of the novels, will be associated with the writing of the script for the various episodes. This is a significant guarantee of rediscovering the unique atmosphere that has captivated so many readers. The writer recently clarified on his social media that the shoot was planned for this summer. Of course, it is possible that the crisis of the Covid-19 keep playing spoilsport. We hope, however, that this series will not need divine intervention to see the light of day. We too can’t wait to see how this abundant universe will be transposed to the small screen!
